Mike Scott (right heel contusion, plantar fasciitis) returned to the Sixers lineup in Game 3 on Thursday and played 14 minutes, scoring five points.
Scott adds an option to the bench for the Sixers and we're going to really test the depth of both of these squads as we go deeper into what looks like a great series between two good teams. We'll see if Scott's health is a pivotal factor along the way.

Mike Scott (right heel contusion, plantar fasciitis) told the media that he will play in Thursday's matchup vs. the Raptors.
Scott said of his ailing right foot, "It feels good. Let's take it for a spin." Continue to monitor his status ahead of game-time as this news didn't come directly from the team. However, his chances of playing seem to be heading in the right direction. If he does end up suiting up, it could lead to less minutes for Jonah Bolden and James Ennis III.

Mike Scott (right heel contusion, plantar fasciitis) will be a game-time decision ahead of Thursday's Game 3 vs. the Raptors.
Scott has missed both games thus far and this injury typically takes some time to recover from. Scott is unlikely to play but the game-time decision tag is positive news and does show that there is a chance he will get out there to help the Sixers take the advantage in the series. Continue to monitor his status as we get closer to tip-off.

Mike Scott (right heel contusion, plantar fasciitis) is listed as questionable ahead of Thursday's Game 3 against the Raptors.
The Sixers expected Scott to play a pivotal role off the bench in these playoffs. With him hurt, James Ennis III has stepped up to play about 20 minutes per game while averaging 12 points in the first two games of this series. If Scott sits out Game 3, Ennis III will continue to play big minutes off the bench.

Mike Scott (right heel contusion, plantar fasciitis) was able to return to practice on Wednesday, though he remains uncertain for Thursday's Game 3.
Scott has shed his walking boot and it looks as though he'll be able to return this series, even if it's not tomorrow. He'll get additional treatment to see how he feels before making a final decision. Scott's return would give the Sixers a legitimate stretch four and help ease the burden on their other bench players.

Mike Scott (right heel contusion, plantar fasciitis) has been ruled out for Monday's Game 2 against the Raptors.

Mike Scott, already ruled out for Saturday's Game 1, was spotted in a walking boot thanks to his right heel contusion and plantar fasciitis.
The Sixers don't expect to have Scott available for the immediate future and haven't planned for the second round as though he'll be ready to go. James Ennis and Jonathon Simmons should see additional run, though Brett Brown specifically called out Zhaire Smith as a guy who could play more.

Mike Scott (right heel contusion/plantar fasciitis) has been ruled out for Saturday’s Game 1 vs. the Raptors.
Coach Brett Brown already stated that the Sixers would be proceeding as if Scott would miss the series so this news isn’t a surprise. As long as Joel Embiid (left knee tendonitis) plays, there won’t be very many minutes left over for the bench crew regardless.

Sixers coach Brett Brown said that he wasn't proceeding as if the Sixers will have Mike Scott (right heel bruise/plantar fasciitis) against the Raptors and it would be a blessing if they did.
This comes on the heels of Scott exiting Game 5 against the Nets on Tuesday and being unable to practice on Thursday. If Scott is unable to go, that will open up 20-30 minutes off the bench. The minutes are likely to be dispersed amongst any of T.J. McConnell, James Ennis III, Jonah Bolden and Greg Monroe depending on game flow and matchups.

Mike Scott (heel) will not return in Game 5 on Tuesday.
Scott looked a bit hobbled as he showed a slight limp coming off the floor late in the second quarter. The Sixers had to call a timeout to get him out of the game. He walked to the locker room under his own power. With the Sixers building a sizable lead by halftime, Scott could simply be resting.

Mike Scott logged 27 minutes on Saturday and hit a go-ahead three with 19.7 seconds left in the game and the Sixers held the lead to take a 3-1 series lead.
Scott also grabbed eight boards in this one and played a lot down the stretch with Jimmy Butler out due to ejection. The Sixers could not get past the four or six point mark for most of the game but finally closed the gap and took the lead towards the end. This game was surely the most exciting of the playoffs so far.

Mike Scott rebounded from a 1-for-8 night to go 5-for-7 from the field (3-of-5 from deep) for 15 points in a Game 2 win on Monday night.
The Sixers' bench has rightly been criticized for being shallow, so performances like this are huge for them. Scott played just 22 mintues tonight after 32 in Game 1 because this game was effectively over before the fourth quarter began.

Mike Scott played 22 minutes in Wednesday's season finale scoring seven points and grabbing seven boards in a win over the Bulls.
Scott seemed to be a throw-in piece in the Tobias Harris (and Boban) trade, but he's played a vital role on a thin Sixers team. He'll finish outside the top-325 on the season for 8 and 9-cat formats, but since coming to Philly that number has slid up to top-260.

Mike Scott (lower back tightness) is available and will start for Wednesday’s season finale game against the Bulls.
The Sixers are without all five of their starters tonight so Scott will be one of the fill-ins in the starting rotation. He has been a great bench piece for a team that is need of depth and will be a great option for DFS or streaming tonight as he will have plenty of opportunity.
